How S, S. Titanic Went to Her 
Doom Carrying 1600 Per- 
sons to an Icy Grave in the 



"Women and Children First" — 
Foundered With Her Band 
Playing and Her Captain on 
the Bridge 

NEW YORK. April xs.—How : the 
White Star liner Titanic, which was 
the largest ship afloat, sank off the 
crana Banl-s of " - NowfyuuaJau?^ ';';'on' 
Monday xnorning: last, carrySiiir to 
their death 1,601 of the 2.340 peraolW 
aboard was told the world In its a- 
details f"r the first time tonight "TSTT 
the arrival at New York of the Cunard 
liner Carpathia bearing the exhausted 
surv'ivora of the catastrophe. * 

Of the great facts that stand out 
from the chaotic account of the 
tragedy those are the most salient: 

The death list ha.<i increased rather 
than decreased. SI.k persons died 
after being rescued. 

The list of prominent persons lost 
stands as previously reported. 

Practically every woman and child 
with the exception of those wornen 
who refused to leave their husbands 
were saved. Among' those was Mrs. 
Tsador Straus. 

The survivors in the lifeboats saw 

the last, heard her band playing, saw 
the doomed hundreds on her deck and 
heard their groans and cries when the 
vessel sanlc. 

Accounts vary as to the extent of 
thp disorder on lioard. 

KaUncr rnll Spaed 

Not only was the Titanic tearing 
through the .^prii jiigiit to her iioom 
with every ounce of -BteHm on, but she 
was under orders froni the general oif- 
flces of the line to taake ali the speed 
of which she wa.s capable. This was 
the statement tonigtit of J. P. Tj. 
"\lo'*dv a ouartcrmfiHt^r of th** vessel 
and liclmsman on the night oif the 
disaster. He said the ship was mak- 
ing 'i\ knots an hour and the offi- 
cers were striving to live up to the 
orders to smash the record. 

"It was close to midnight," said 
Moody, "and I was on the bridge w-ith 
tlie second officer who was irr command. 
Hiidfleniy he shouted -port your heim.' 
I did so but it was too late. We struclc 
the submerged portion of the berg." 

Of the many accounts given by the 
passengers most of them agreed that 
the felioctt wljen tlie Titanic struck the 
Iceberg, althougli ripping her great sldes^ 
IJiie a giant can opener, did not greatly 
jar the entire vessel, for the blow was 
a glancing one along the side. The ac- 
coimtH also agree subsequently that 
when the passengers were taken off In 
the Mfeboats there w-as no serious panic 
and t1iat many wished "to remain on 
board the Titanic." 

Ksr Ziaat Flange 

The most distressing stories are those 

ttivii'iK the cXpetletiCe of jxtsaehiBera iii 
"i^he lifeboats. These tell not only of 
their own sufferlwg but give the har- 
rowing details of how tbe.v saw the 
great bullo of the Titanic stand on end 
stern uppermost for many minutes be- 
fore plunging to the bottom. As this 
awful apectacle was witnessed by the 
groups of survivors in the Ixiats they 
plainly aw.w many of those w^hom they 
had Just left behind leaping from the 
decks into the water. 

J. Bruce Ismay, president of tlie In- 
ternational Mercantile Marine, owners 
of the White Star line, who was among 
the seventy odd saved; P. A. S. Frank- 
lin, vice-president of the White Star 
company and United States Senator Al- 
den Smith, chairman of the senate in- 
vestlgatlnir committee, hold a coivfer- 
ence ^oard the Carpathia soon after 
the passengers had come ashore tonight. 
After nearly an hour Senator Smith 
came off to the cabin and said he had 
no power to subpoena witnesses at this 
time. He announced that Mr. Ismay had 
consented to appear at the hearing and 
thiit Mr. Franxiin and the few surviv- 
ing officers would appear for exiimina-

Mr. Smitli also was questioned as to 
the speed at which the Titanic was 
proceeding when she crashed into tihe 
berg. He said he had asked Mr. Ismay 
but declined to sRy what Mr. Ismay's 
reply was. 

The arrival of the Carpathia brought 
a vast multitude of persona to the 
Cunard doclts. They filled the vast 
pier akeds, and, overflowing for blocks, 
crowded tlie nearby streets. Through- 
out it all the rain fell steadily, adding 
a funeral aspect to the scene. 

X^asdlng Burrlvors 

The landing of the survivors was 
attended with little c-XciteTnent. the 
crowds standing In groups as the ship 
passed along. The docking actualli' 
began shortly after 9 o'clock and the 
debarking of passengers was disposed 
so quickly by the waiving of the usual 
formalities that practically everything 
had been cleared by 10.30 o'clock. Tlie 
crowds remained about the piers long 
after tliis to get a glimpse of the res- 
suing steamer and to hear the harrow- 
iiis stories " whlcii toad , heen hrausht

NKW YORK. Anrll 18. — The following 
Is the account of Mr. Beasley of l,onoon: 

"The vo.vage from Queenstowii had 
been quite uneventful as fine weather was 
experienced and the sea was quite calm. 
It was very cold. After dinner on Sunday 
evening it was almost too cold to be 
out on deck. 

"I had been in my berth for about ten 
iiilnute.s when at about 11 '15 p. m., I felt 
a slight jar and then soon after a sec- 
ond one, but not sufficiently heavy to 
cause any anxiety. However, the engines 
stepped immediately and I went upon 
the deck in a dressing gown and found 
■onlv a few pSGPls thsrt: who had come 
up similarly to inquire why we liad 
stopped. We saw through the smoking 
room window a game of cards going on 
and went in to inquire if they knew any- 
thing. It seems they felt more of the 
jar and looking through the window had 
seen a huge iceberg go by close to the 
side of the boat. They thought we had 
juat grazed It with a glancing blow and 
tl)0 engines had been stopped to' see if 
any damage had been done. 

"No one of course had any conception 
that she had been pierced below by sub- 
merged Iceberg. The game went on 
without any thought of dlaster and I re- 
tired to my cabin to read until we went 
on again. 1 ncvsr saw any of the play- 
ers or 'the onlookers again, a Itttle later, 
hearing people going upstairs, I went 
cut again and saw tlmt there was an un- 
doubted list downwar.J from the stern 
but knowing nothing of what had hap- 
pened, concluded some of the front com- 
partments had filled and weighted down. 
I went down aga^n to put on warmer 
c:othlng and as I dressed heard an or- 
der shouted: 

' Vo Panic 

"All passengers on deck with llfg belts 

."We all walUod slowly up with them, 
but even then presumed fchls was a pre- 
caution the captain was taking and that 
we should return In a short time and re- 
tire to bed^ There was a total absence 
or panlc^ or expressions of alarm and I 
suppose this can be accounted for by the 
exceedingly cj.lm night and the absence 
oC any signs of the accident The ship 
was abolutcly still and except for a 
gentle tiit downwards which I dont 
tl Ink on(< person in ten would have not- 
iced at that time, no signs of the ap- 
proachlng disaster was visible. She lay 
JfSt as if she were waiting the order to 
go on again, when some trifling matter 
had been adjusted. But in a few mo- 
ments we .Maw the covers lifted on boats 
and the i rews alloted to them standlmr 
by and uncurling ropes which they were 
tc lower them by. 

"We then began to realize that some- 
f.hlng serious had happened; my first 
il'.cught was to get more clothing and 
some money but seeing people pouring 
up the stairs 1 decided It was better to 
cause no confusion to people coming up 
by doing so. Presently we heard the or- 
der; ^ ' ' ' 

"All men Biand hack away from the 
boats and all ladles retire to the next 
deck below — the smoking room on B 

Xa AJb«ol«t« MlMiee 

The men all stood away and remained 
in absolute sllenaa leaning agminat -the 
ralia of the deck off paelAg aknrlr up 
and down. The boats ware swung over 
and lowered on A deok. '^ben they were 

to the iBVol of B 'deck, all the ladles 
were collected. The ladies got in quickly 
with the exception of some who refused 
to leave their husbands. In some cases 
they were torn from them and payed 
into the boats, but in many instances 
tl y were allowed to remain because 
there was no one to Insist they s'hould 

"Looking over the side, one saw boats 
from abaft already in the water slipping 
quietly away into the durknets and pre- 
sently the boats near to us were lowered 
with much creaking as the new ropes 
slipped through the pulley blocks down 
the no feet which separated them from 
the water. An officer in imlform as one 
beat was lowered shouted: 

"When you are afloat row around to 
the companion ladder and stand by the 
otlier boats for orders." 

""Aye, !i.\c. slrl' came up the reply, 
hut I don't think ;iny Yumi was able to 
•^hey tha order. 

Tear of Suction 

■RSiR they were afloat and had" the 
oars at work the condition of the rapid- 
ly tilling vessel was so much more a 
siglit fur alarm for those in boats 
than those on boad th© TJtanlc that in 
common prudehca the diailora eaw they 
could do nothing but row from the 
slnkilng ship to save at any rate some 
lives. They no doubt expected that 
suction from such an enormous vessel 
would be more than usually dangerous 
to a - crowded boat mostly filled with 

.■».JaLjyhl» -n n iB- ' tBer i 
|»»y':'«HiW7aer, panic I 
boats and no scenes of women aobbini? 
hysterically such as one generally pic- 
tures as happening at such timfs.. 
Kvcryono seemed to realize no slo*\ly 
that there wag imiTilnent danger. Whesi 
It v,':ls realized that we might all bo 
presently In the sea with nothing but 
our lifebelts to eupport us until wo 
were picked up by passing steamers It 
was extraordinary how calm everyone 
was and how completely self-control- 

riUtng the Zdfeboats 

"One by one the boats were filled 
with women and children being lower- 
ed and sent away into the night. Pres- 
ently the word went around among 
the men: 

" 'The men are to be put in boats on 
the starboard side' 

" 'I was on the port sldo and most of 
the men walked around the deck to see 
If this was so. I remained wheie I was 
and presently hciird the call, 

"'Any more ladies?" 

'■ 'I saw none come and then one of 
the crew looked up and s;iid, 

"Any ladies on your de<'k. sir'." 

"'No!' I quickly replied. 

" Then you had better jump quickly." 

"I ui-ijpireri ttim ieJi in the cwttom, as 
they cried, "Lower away!' 

As the boat began to descend, two 
ladles were puaherl hurriedly through 
the crowd on B dock and heaved over 
it to thfi boji.t, and a baby of ten 
months passed down with them. Down 
we went with the crowd clinging to 
those lowering each end, to keep her 
level, 'Aft!' 'Stern!' 'Both together!' 
until we were some ten feet from the 
water, and here occurred the only an.ti- 
oua moment we had tluring the whole 
Of our e.xporlence from leaving tile 
deck Ui reaching the (Carpathia. 
Oitagar of Swamping 

"Immediately below our .boat was 
tlie exhaust of the condensers, a huge 
stream of wcter pouring ail the time 
from the -ship's inside, just above tlic 
watcrlinc. It was plain we ought to be 
away from this in order not to be 
swamped by it when we touelied water. 
We had no offl<.'er aboard, no petty of- 
ficer, or member of th^' crow to take 
charge. So one of the stokers said: 

" 'Find the bolt which releases the 
boat from the ropes and pull it up.' 

"No one knew where it was. 

"Down we went, and with our ropes 
still holding us, the exhaust washing 
us away from the aide or the vessel, 
and the swell of the sea urging us 
back against the side again. We were 
carried directly under the bow of a 
boat which was coming down on us In 
a way that threatened to submerge our 

"'Stop lowering HI' one of the 
crew shouted, and the crew of No. 14, 
now only twenty feet above shouted 
the same. 

"Down she catne and Just before she 
dropped over a stoker came to our 
rescue and cut the ropes. The next 
moment the ex.hau8t stream carried 
us clear, while boat 14 dropped Into 
the water In the space we had the 
tTioment before occupied, our gunv\-ales 
almort touching. We drifted away 
easily and headed directly away from 
the ship." 

A BtrlklBg Bpeetaole 

"It was now about 1 a. m., a beau- 
tiful KtarliglU nigl:t. Thj sea was as 
calm as a pond. As we rowed away 
from the Titanic wc looked back from 
time to time to watch her aad a more 
striking spectacle It was not possible 
for anyone to see. 

"In the distance she looked an enor- 
mous length, her great lyulk outlined 
In black against the starry sky, every 
port hole and saloon blazing with 
lights. It was impossible to think any- 
thing could be wrong with sucii a 
leviathan if It was not for tltat omin- 
ouis tilt downwards at her bows w'nere 
the water was by now up to the lower 
of her rows of portholes. Presently, 
about 2 a. m., as near as 1 can remem- 
ber, we observed her settling very ra- 
pidly at the bows. 

"Sh» slowly tutted, straight jon_ end 
with the stern vertically upward, and, 
as 9he did, the lights in tlic cabin and 
ftalootia which had not flickered for a 
momeint since we left, died out, came 
on attain (or a single flash and finally 
went out 4iUogethftr. At the same time 
the ftachinery roared down through 
the veaaal with » ratle and a groaning

that upright position for a time, which 
1 estimated as live minutes while wc 
watched at least 150 feet of the Titanic 
above the level of the sea and look-

"Then, with a qlick standing dive 
she disappeared beneath the water.s, 
vand tiifM'c was left to us the gently 
heaving sea, f!he boat filled to stand- 
ing room with men and women in every 
conceivable condition of dress and un- 
dress; above, the perfect quiet of the 
brilliant stars with not a cloud In 
sight, all tempered with a bitter cold. 
In the Supreme Hour 

"Now and tlien thoro fell on our ears 
the most appalling noise that human 
beings ever listened to — the cries of 
hundreds of our fellow beings strug- 

help with a cry that we knew could 
not be answered. We wanted to re- 
turn and pick up som.c of those swim- 
ming but this would have nieant to 
swamp our boat. We tried to sing to 
kt^eii the wOinon from hearing the cries 
and the men rowed li-.ird to get away 
fiMiii the scene of the wreck. 

"We kept a lonkoiu f 'i li;<IUM and 
later saw a light %vhlch slowly re- 
solved itself into a double llglit.

headed for her. The steerman .shout- 
ed: 'Now boys, sing.' 

"For the flrst time the broke 
iitvO song "With 'Row for the Shore, 
Boy«' and for tho firat time tears came 
to the eyes of us all as we snw- .luccor 
at hand. 

"The song was sung but It was a 
very poor Iml^Atlon of the real thing, 
for quavering voice.-? make poor songs. 
A cheer was given next. 'That was 
better. You keep in tune for a cheor,' 
said ti\e steersman.'"^ ^ 

"Our rescuer showed up rjipldly and 
as she swung round we saw her cabin.3 
all alight and knew she must be a 
large steamer. She ■vj.s not niotIonles.s 
and we had to row ro I'e.-. .Umt then 
day broke, a beautiful dawn with faint 
pink clouds Just above tiie horizon 
and a new moon whose crescent 
Just touched the Horizon. 

" 'Turn .vour money over boys,' said 
our cheery steersman. 'That is If you 
have any,' he added. 

"We laughed at him for his super- 
stition at such a time but he countere<l 
very noatly by adding, "Well I shall 
never say again that i:i Is an unlucky 
number, for 13 ha.s been tlip best friend 
We ever had.'

j-aw in the dawmlng what wo thought 
was a fully rigged schooner .standing 
up near lier iind presently behind liei- 
another, with all sails set and we said: 

" 'They are fisher boats frojn the 
N'ew.foundland banks and have seen the

to h'^lp us." 

"But in another five minutes tho 
light showed they were Icebergs tower-

dpacily white, Btill, and peaked in a 
way that had suggested a scohoner. 

"We glanced round the horizon and 
there were others as far as the eye 
oould see. The steamer we had tJ

luid to make a detour to rccch her. 
Between her and us lay a""* '■'*•• *<"»c

about 4.30 «. m. and were hoisted, or

Vtts given by ^\ . L. BeaBloy, a Canv

London. Mr. Bcnwley was In the see- 
on 1 tabln and had not been mentioned 
In tho list of the saved. 


NEW YORK, April iS.-^The Cunard 
liner Carpathia, a ship of gloom and 
succor, came into New York tonight 
with lirst news direct from the great 
White Star liner Titanic which sanlt 
orf the Grand Banks of N.-wfoundland 
early im Monday morning last. 

The great liner went down with her 
band playing, taking with her to 
her death all but 745 of her human 
cargo (*l 2,340 souls. 

To this awfui death list, six persons 
were added. One died In tho lifeboat 
which was put «ff from the liner's 
side and five subsequently succumbed 
on tho rescue ship Carpathia. 

Tho Il«t of prominent men missing 
staiido Rb prevlouoly reported and the 
tntJi! death list as brought to port by 
the Carpathia Is ItiOl. Survivors in 
tho llfeboat.s huddled In dHrknegf. «t «.• 
.safe distanee from the striken ship 
and saw her go down. 

That the liner struck an iceberg 
repofted by w-Irelcss was conceded by 
all. She struck amidships, and, ripped 
from stem to cnglnerouin -by- the 
great mass of ice, the Tltanic's aide 
was laid open. 

She simply listed to starboa-d and 
a shcKvcr of Ice fell on the forecastle 
deck. Shortly before she sark she 
broke in two abaft tho engineroom, 
and, as she disappeared beneath the 
w ater, the expulsio n nf ;ilv -au?c,l f'.«.o

A moment more and the Titanic had 
gone down to her do^m with the fated

tho last. 


NBW YOHK, April IS.— A passen- 
ger on the Carpathia made the follow- 
ing statement: 

"I was awakened at about half past 
twelve at night by a commotion on 
tlie decks which seemed unusual, but 
there was no excitement. As the boat 
was moving I paid little attention to 
it. and went to sleep again. About 
3 o'l-lock I was again wakened. I no- 
ticed that the boat hwd stopped. I 
went to the deck. The Cari>atlvia had 
changed her course. Life boats were 
siglited and began to arrive, and so(m, 
one by one, they drew up to our side. 

"There were 16 In all, and the trans- 
ferring of the passengers was m.ost 
pitiable. The adults were assisted in 
climbing ithe rope ladders by ropes ad-

"Some people were in full evening 
dres.s. tOthers were In their night 
clothes and were wrapped in blankets. 
These with immigrants In all mannpr 
of attire were hurried Into the saloon 
for a hot breakfast. They had Seen 
in the open boats for four or five 
hours in the most biting air I ever 
o-vperienced. There were hufihands 
without wives, wives without hus- 
bands, parenta withouit cWldren and 
children without parents. But there 
were no demonstrations, no sobs. 
Scarcely a word was spoken. They 
seemed to be stunned. 

"Immediately after breakfast divine 
service was held In the saloon. One 
woman died In the lifeboats, three 
others died soon after reaching our 
deck and their bodies were buried in 
tho sea at 5 o'clock that afternoon.

went down with the vessel but was 
picked up. iHc was met tonight by his 
daughter, who had arrived from Wash- 
ington and his son-in-law, P. H. J''abri-

-story of his physital luLrdshiiia and 
ilenled emphatically the reports that 
there had been any panic on board. He 
pi-ttised in tiie iiifr'iKbi teiiiia tiie on-

with her to take her place in the boat, 
she steadfastly refused and when tha

Colonel Grade told of hov he was 
driven to the topmost deck when the

NEW YORK. April 18.— A young 
Englishwoman, who requested that her 
name be omitted, told a thrilling story 
0^ her experience in one of the col- 
lapsible boats which had been manned 
by eight of the crew from the Titanic. 
The boat was in command of fifth 
officer H. Lowe, whose actions she de- 
scribed as saving the lives of many 
people. Before the lifeboat was launch- 
he passed along the port decks of the 
steamer commanding the people not 
to jump In the boats and otherwise re- 
straining them from swamping themt 
When the collapsible boat was launch- 
ed Oflk5e;r Lowe succeeded In putting 
in a mast and a small sail. He col- 
lected the other boats together. In 
some oasss the boats^ were short of 
adequate crews, and he directed an ex- 
chafif e by which each was manned ad-

"Before I retired," said Colonel Grdcie, 
"I had a long chat with Charles M. 
Hays, president of the Grand Trunk Pa-

Hays said was this: "The White Star,

OTTAWA, April 18. — Colllngwood 
Schrleber, chief consulting engineer for 
the Dominion government, has Just re- 
turned from a tour of Inspection over 
most of the recently constructed por- 
tion of the G.T.P. main line in the 
West. He was as far west as Tete 
Jaune Cache, which is fifty miles west 
of Y''elIowhead Pass. 

In conversation with representatives 
of the press, Mr. Schleber stated that 
the G.T.P. is now completed to a point 
278 miles wtst of Edmonton or thirty 
miles west of Yellowhead Pass. Tho 
track has been laid from Prjnce Ru- 
pert 164 miles eastward. This leaves a 
gap of 490 miles still to be constructed. 
Mr. Schrleber rcmarkt'd on the fact that 
the llnei so far built In British Columbia 
represents the most difficult portion of 
mountain construction. 

By tlic end of the present month 35 
more miles will be graded on the eec- 
tlon this side of Tcte Jaune Cache, 
while on the section east of Prince Ru- 
pert grading Is being donfe to a distance 
of 245 miles from that city. Mr. 
Schrleber reports that labor conditions 
are unsettled In the northern part o( 
British Columbia, although conditions 
are better than they were a year ago.

SFAV YOUK. April 18.— The .sufferings 
of the Titanl<''s passengers when taken 
olf the lifeboats by the Carpathia were 
Kraphlcally told by John Kuhl of Omaha.

Of all the heroes who went to tlielr 
death when the Titanic dived into Us

credit than the members of tht vessel's

sand assembled. Other vantage points 
further up town w(«rc crowded with 
persons eager to catcli the first glimpse 
of the approacliing Carpathia. 

The Carpathia proceeded steadily to- 
wards her dock, passing the Statue of 
Liberty at 7:60, the Battery at 8:15 and 
then on past tlie forest of shipping on 
both sides of the river, proceeding 
cautiously under an escort of tugs. 

.\s the liner passed the Battery the 
great crowds stood In silence. At In- 
tervals the dark r'lver up which the 
rescue siilp, with few lights showing, 
was lighted up as photographers from 
decks of tugs and from well selected 
places on shore, exploded great flash- 
lightB. As the Carpathia steamed up 
the river, dimly lighted and slow mov- 
ing, she looked like a funeral boat. 

Among the Crowd were scores of 
white clad hospital attendants with 
wtretehers. Invalid chairs also were 
rolled up to the pier entraBCs for those 
who were unable to walk. 

When the ship docked at »:30 the 
gang plank quickly was lowered and 
doctors and nurses walked aboard. The

NEW YUUK, April 18. — Bruce Ismay, 
chairman of the International Mercan- 
tile Marine, gave out the following pre- 
pared statement at the pier: 

"In the presence, and under the 
shadow ot a catastrophe so overwhelm- 
ing, my feelings are too deep for ex- 
pression In words and I can only say 
that the officers and employes will do 
everything humanly possible tu alle-

the respective departments was prom- 
iscU' in the ilouBc of COniniono by Sjj'd-

Naval architects are already burying 
tiiemselves with the problem of design- 
ing a deck which can be slipped from 
a sinking liner. said John Harvard 
Biles, vice president of the Institution 
of Xaval Architecture, today. Hi,- 

"The problem Is c 
expense of the apparat 
be used only once In 50 years. An un- 
slnkable ship Is a fiction of the trans- 
Atlantlc sailors." 

I'"lgure8 from the highest official 
sources show that '.M50 lives was the 
greatest number that po-sslbly could 
b© saved with the apparatus carried 
On the Titanic. That vessel'M facilities 
were just within the board of tra^lo 
regulations, which specified total ac- 
commodations for 962 persons. ]':aeh 
of the Titanlc's lifeboats was cap- 
able of taking 6:! passengers. There was 
no evidenQc on the plans to show that 
the Titanic carried any collapsible 
boats or rafts or lifeboats, ptitting her 
barely within the board of trade regu- 

Comparl-sons with the Oceanic and 
Campania, which are much smaller, 
show that they carry 20 boats each. 
The Lusitania has only 16. The board 
of trade rules Ittid down In 1905 took as 
triclr basis 10,000-ton ships, and apply 
only to ships with watertight com-

John, Why Don't You Get a Gnartnteed Hat, Too? 

Why not. indeed, when the BUCKLEY guaranteed hat cost* no more 
than the ordinary kind> 

An ordinary hat could not be sold with the iron-clacJ BUCKLEY guar^ 
antee. Only the exceptional quality made into every BUCKLEY hat can 
possibly live up to its makers* endorsement. Nor '\% the guarantee an ordinary 
one ; it is the sltiongest ever given vnih any itriich of apparel. In order to avoid 
all possibility of an argument, or of embarrassing questions from the dealer, 
the guarantee provides that he is to give you a new hat even if your old one 
has been damaged by accident ^ 

Can ypu think of any ilronger way for the makers to express their con-1 
fidence in the BUCKLEY?

all chance of conlradlctlon on tlic pub- 
lished facts. 

The r'.asoii given why the Titanic 
did not currj; more boats was that the 
iLKulalions of the Board Of Trade, 
framed by inariiu- exports, do not re- 
quire vessels of tho so-culled uusink- 
able type tb have boats enoupfli to 
accommodate tlieir full complement of 
pussengers ami crew. We all know 
that experts In construction and ex- 
perts in the reuuiremetits of sliips 
were wroiiK- The ipt^son has beiTn 

be hoped it will be lieeditl. We now 
know that n.s yet an uiislnkable ship 
has not been devised; we also linve 
Very good reason for believing that 
none ever can be. At least wc are'juat- 
Illed in thinking that no sliip can ever 
lif! built that will not be in danger of 
going down. Jt Is true that hundreds 
of voyages are made in perfect safety 
where one results in even a minor dis- 
aster; but the law must guard against 
(xtremo cases. Xo vessel that puts 
to sea is secure from accident which 
iriay not make it necessary for every 
one aboard to take to the boats. We 
know this now; but If any one had 
said so last weeli, tlie so-called ex- 
perls would liav(' laughed him to scorn. 
It Is tinie for the common people to 
lake thenisel\es heard, it not be 
tliat t!ic cries of those who w-ent down 
in the darkness to a death amid the 
Atlantic loe-tloes, be as voices tliat j 
nitd in tlie wilderness. Let the clam- 
or of public opinion make itself heard 
until the lesson of this awful sacrl- 
lice to expert Ignorance Is written upon 
every statute book. Terhaps what a 
paper published in this part of the 
world may have to say upon sucli a 
.subject may not have much weight In 
tlie councils of ^hose who have the de- 
cision of such matters; but it is our 
duty to voice tlie sentiment of the 
eomniunit.v and we have done so.

cause it was ttllfttfed that the «o»*rn- 
nient of the Unltttd StatfiiS l« r«pubUcan 
in form, not democrullc. It ^ Is true 
that the court held the measures were 
constilutionai, but it miijiit "Cia 
otherwise, and if It might ■have held 
otherwise, it is always possible that the 
court may be Bo constituted at some 
time' that It wlU reverse the decision 
lately given, or may on some other im- 
portant point determine that there Is a 
phase of self-government not open to the 
people oi the United States. In view 
of the inevitable clash between special 
interests and the public -welfare, the fact 
that there is in the country an appoin- 
tive body, which is superior to the people 
and from whose decisions there can be 
no appeal, beccnnes fraught with dan- 

in this country all v.-c ask of a,judK« 
is that h'e shall to the best of his ability, 
honestly interpret tho law. If a decision 
is objectionable to the people and it Is 
ui>held by the appellate courts, there Is 
always redress available from some leg- 
islative body, and If the legislature will 
not remedy It, the people can elect a 
legislature that wWh It seems highly 
Important that, this should be Kept In 
mind In these days when we hear so 
much talk about the superiority of the 
Institutions of other countries to those 
of our own, and when so many allena

that the special interests, the represen-^

great franchises, the benenciarles of any 
species of legislation will see in the 
senatorial debate a new reason for ob- 
taining control of the body whose assent 
is necessary for the conflrinution of ju- 
dicial appointments. As long as there 
is a body liaving power to curb the as-

The latest appointment made by Pres- 
bltnt Taft to the Supreme Court of the 
rnited States was ratlfled by the Senate, 
but was reconsidered the following day, 
snbBequcntly being ratified. The inci- 
dent Itself is oC no special Interest ,but 
tlie reconsideration and subsequent dis- 
cussion are because of what gave rise 
to them. No finest Ion was raised as to 
the fitness of the appointee on the 
ground of legal attainments or personal 

■ character, the (piestion at issue being 
whether or not lie held what the major- 
ity of the senators 'jonsidered sound 
views on ciueslionH upon which the Su-

we canr>(t)t but think the movement te

ITnder the Constitution of the VTnltcd 
Slates the powers of Congress are fixed. 
In Canada all legislative power vests 
somewhere. In the Uiilted States Con- 
gtesa exerctikea certain powers; tlie state 
legl^laturcB have certain other powers. 
and the theory haa been that the resi-

The announcement that Mr. J. 11. 
Hawthornthwaitu contemplates enter- 
ing tho political arena in he United 
Kingdom does not come as a surprise. 
Although he never speclllcally said so, 
it was understood by Mr. Hawthornth- 
Wttite's friends that he lind sucli an 
.object in view. .He ia a gentleman of 
much ability and c?.n hardly fall to 
make a mark in British polltlca. 

The Colonist has not always been In 
sympathy with Mr. Hawthornthwaile's 
political methods and his views of pub- 
lic nuestlons have not always com- 
mended themselves to it; but this has 
not prevented us from recognizing that 
his Ideals are lofty and that hl's In- 
lluence has been exerted in behalf of 
those who toil. Personally in common 
with all who enjoy his friendship, wo' 
hold him in high esteem, and we extend 
to him our best wishes for his future 
prosperity. The years have done much 
to make Mr. liawthornthwaite a use-

Aid to tbe Sufferers 

.Sir: — Everyone must stand ag' 
the terrible mishap on the Atlantic, 
when the Titanic carried with her some 
1600 souls to death. Tho proliablllty ia 
that about 700 at least of those were 
n icnbera" of,, the crew and .veri' probably 
cdcli man had either wife and children 
or other' relatives dependent on him. 

Can we in Victoria sit quietly and let 
those dependents want? They are of our 
British Imperial family, «o shall w« 
wlio are In a prospero-us corner of the 
Empire and not directly aJIe<:ted by the 
apalUng loss of life, sit quietly while 
knowing that hundreds of people have 
lost their nearest and dearest and are 
perhaps being made more painfully 
aware of the fact in the knowledge 
of the sudden stoppage of Income. 

May »I suggest that you, Mr. Editor, 
signify your willingness to accept dona- 
tions to a fund for the relief of those 
affected and aLso would it be asking 
too much for his worship the mayor to 
.voice the feeling of the people of this 
city named after Victoria the Good, in 
a message to the proper rjuarter. Suivly 
such actlona would be appreciated.

It the steamship Titanic could have 
been set on the Causeway, her bow 
would have been opposite the north end 
of the post office and her stern oppo- 
site the Provini-ial Muneum. She would 
liavo hidden the Empress hotel com- 
pletely from view from steamers en-

most part of the roof. 

Clarence V. T. RIcheson, a minister 
of the Gospel, living In Ma.isachusctts, 
deliberately murdered a young girl 
member of his choir because she stood 
In the way of his marrying an heiress. 
He was found guIUy and- sentenced to 
death. Now people are ransacking his 
family history for generations back to 
prove that he was insane when he com- 
mitted the deed. 

Every one will be glad to know that 
the most rigid Inquiry Is to be Insti- 
tuted Into the origin of the false re- 
ports sent out concerning the Titanic 
wreck. We do not like to think tdiat 
any of them originated In over-zeal 
on the part of newspaper men. Ex- 
planations ouglit to be forthcoming 
also from the Wihlte Star oflAelala in

sir. In editorial t/Olumns of your pa- 
per of this morning the 18th, "re In- 
sanitary conditions" you refer to con- 
ditions at the foot of Barnard road. 

1 was In the iKipes tliat this matter 
might be attended to wlUiout too much 
publicity and for this reason 1 have re- 
frained until the present from 'publish- 
Ing anything In connection with same. 

You say. If people Interested in mat- 
ters of this sort would complain to 
those whose duty it is to provide a rem- 
edy that something would be done. 

It was In .lune, 1911. t!i«t I purchased 
my present home in your city, and that 
1 ^t~rzt hr;tt!^ht thif*. matter to the iLtten- 
tion of the city. It was not nearly 
a.< bad aa it \e now, although l'a<l en- 

Hlm-e coming here lo live the first 
of August, 1011. I have lime after time 
taken it up with the offlclals but so far 
witliout results. I can get no satisfac- 
tion of any sort. 

Tlie trouble is one block, is Inside the 
City limits and. is partly .caused from 
houses oulsldti the limits who arc con- 
nected with a private sower. 

For this rason I am at last Informed 
by Dr. Hall, tho city medical health 
officer, that I will have to take the 
(luest'lon up witti the provincial health 
(Upartment, through Mr.' Fagan. 

I might say that l have written Dr. 
ai''gan and am hop^ig thai at last souie- 
thlng may be done. 

The situation is as follows: Barnard 
road Ifl a short road off Esquimau road, 
running down to the beach. 

tn this respect I might say that the 
beach IB In front of my property, iha.'. 

I have a lease of it from the Dominion 
government and that I am Improving It 
In every way that I can, as It Is the 
only sandy beach In this district, and 

II favorite resort and play ground, not 
only for my own children but all the 
children In this district. 

The end of Barnard road being the 
only public appraach to this beach. This 
end haa been made a dumping ground 
for garbage of all kinds, which Is bad 
enough, but nothing to compare with 
sewage connection and conditions as at 
pi aimnt. 

There are apmo houses Iri this district 
that canhot connct with the 'main «ewer, 
as the aewer is too high for their con- 
nection. These houses with ome outtlde 
the city limits an I understand it, are 
connected with a private sewen that has 
no aeptic tank In connection with It, but 
the pipe comes down the end of Barnard 
road and empties on tho beach In front 
of my property. 

This has alwava beep bad, but for aome 
months now baa been dnngeroua as the' 
pipe la evidently broken or clogged anti

Six Ken Taken ia Charge By Police on 

Obargea of Intimidation 

of Workmen 

Taken in charge accused of having 

ture, five of the striking employees o£ 
the Canadian Mineral Rubber company 
were arrtsted yesterday at noon by dep- 
uty Chief Palmer, Inspector Walker, 
.Sergeant Harper and a squad of police, 
summoned to Herald street by telephone 
message by special officers appointed 
to guard the workmen at work at that 
point. .Samuel HIgglnson, one of tho 
leaders of the I.W.W. forces in the city, 
was among those arrested, the others 
being W. Plaister, .lohn Dot. James Din- 
nell. and E. Youngstas. 

'Wie five, with others, all believed to 
be acflve agents of the I.W.W., were 
early at the scene of work and despite 
warnings persisted in wandering among 
the men and by threats attempted to 
Induce them to leave work. They en- 
deavored to achieve their purpose by 
jiolnting out that tho n\en at work 
would soon be discharged, "and that If 
tliey would go on strike at once they 
would be lobktd after for the present 
and later, wh«i the company would be 
forced to meet the demand for Increased 
wages, the men would benefit should 
they desire to resume work. Under es- 
cort the five were taken to the police 
station and booked. 

Louis Augustine, a foreigner, was also 
arrested yesterday morning on Superior 
street, where he was attempting to dis- 
suade workmen at the new construction 
work from continuing' work. A large 
number of etriktrs assembled at Su- 
perior street and by threats Induced 
the paving company's gan4 " there to 
cease work. 

The company's officials state that 
men are dally returning to work, and It 
is expected that within a day or two 
nearly all gangs, will be sufficiently 
large to continue work at practically 
full speed. Seven gangs *ro now at 
work, and thf. concrete mixer was start- 
ed up yesterday on Herald street. In 
all about 200 men a^e at work and 
Villa number will, it Is stated, be aug- 
mented Vo about 300 by Monday.

It is proposed, if the privileges of-

proposed and was not carried out owing 
to the death of His Majesty King Ed- 
ward, can be .secured, to make an at- 
tack, from the city side of the harbor on 
Hospital point on the Indian reserve. 
There a "fort" will be held by a force, 
of the local artillerymen, and this will 
be bombarded with a battery of field 

It Is proposed to place two guns on 
the C.P.R. wharf, if Capt. Troup ptr-

carry out the bombardment of the Hos- 
pital point defences. Under cover of 
this fire the remainder of tho artlUtry- 
men who are not serving the field guns 
will be taken !n bc>ats to make a land- 
ing to carry the Hospital point fort, 
where a stock of flrewor'aa will bt

INDIA.N'APOLJS, April 18.— When 
I rankle Buru», of Jersey City, finished 
ten rounds of the fastest bantamweight 
milling ever seen In an Indiana prize 
ring, with Chick Hayes, of Indianapolis, 
«a the *>I>]>0"i ♦!**>= ^? l"""" th*t «nqth«r 
lie-pound lad had somcthtnif to say 
•botit the title In that division. Instead 
of picklnjt oft a soft proposition. Burns 
tangled up with a IS-ysar-old miller, 
who proved that h« would be the next 
man for tha bantam lltia contenders to 
dispose of before tbetr olaim cOuld be 
i^fttnted without question. 

nutfis wa* slven cradU for a aUcht 
shade over Hayes, but the Hooalar 
chicken psrfonned far above ejcptota- 
lions, and flnlstied the tenth round with 
«» mucb utrenflta «» diU ttM "Jeriay 

Skeelcr," to wlioni imtny have given the 
credit of holding even with Johnny Ton- 
ion at New -Orleans in their reeenl 
twenty-round go, despite the referee's 
decision against Burn.s. Burns' followers 
dropped a nice little bunch of money 
on two or tliree wagers thai, rfayes 
would not last the ten rounds. 

Tile Hayes lad not only sta.veu the 
ten rounds hut hurt Burns several times 
when the hivtlling wa.s of tiie toe to 
toe variety, and when at <lose .nuirters 
Hayes withstood Burns' liillghting with- 
out suffering at any tiiio^. Burns' great- 
est advantage lay in hi* longer reaeli 
and heiglit. l)Ut lluyes proved nnnli llie 
faster of the two in Ills footwork unu 
oulllgliting, landing eleane,- and harder 
blows than Burns 

Two or three tunes the Jef.'iey Cit>- 
boy was driven to the ropes with hard 
lefts to the face, and Hayes brought 
out for tlie lirst time a hard riMhl 
Runch. ISxperl.s who saw the milling 
gave llayes credit for fiO per cent im- 
provement since he heal Monte .'vttell, 
and prophesied that inside of six months 
he would beat Burns und Coulon in any 
style of lighting they cboomi. Hayes 
and Burns probably will bo rcmatched 
in tlie near future.

day yesterday when the evidence was 
taken against S. F. Chaivand Mrs. Chan, 
charged with keeping a disorderly ho^ise 
at 120 Niagara street. Wing, another 
of the Clilucae taken in the roid on 
the place, told of the ciinracter of the 
premises. In tho afternoon the Chans 
and Wong, another Chinese arrested 
with them, gave evidence for the de- 
fence, maintaining that the witnesses 
for llie prosecution had not told the 
truth, and .Mr. Frank Hlggins, for the 
defence, took the ground that there was 
a conspiracy by the Chinese witnesses 
for the prosecution against his clients, 
on account of their having given In- 
formation regarding gambling houses in 
Chinatown to the police. The case was 
remanded until this morning.

The Toronto Star sets out vvy clear- 
ly ihe aims of the Victorian Order of 
Xursta and shows why the money asked 
for by the Duchess of ConnauglU shoul'd 
be fre.?ly subscribed. The editor says; 
"An attempt is belnt,' made to raise a 
Huni of ?r>00,000 to extend the work of 
the Victorian Order of Nurses. The ob- 
ject' Is 10 supplement the work or the 
lar.«e hospitals by provldingr nurses 
and. where possible, hospital accommo- 
dation for the smaller towns and sparse- 
ly sellled portions of Canada. Thl.«i Is' 
a very beneficial wurk, tor whlcl. there 
is srreat nefd in a country having a 
small population scattered over a large 
urea. In many newly settled districts 
there 3.r; no hoj^pit?'"! families live far 
apart, and the problem of obtaining alil 
in sickness. tspecially in maternity 
oases, is serious in the extreme. In the 
cities liiere arn many homes where the 
servicts of the Victorian nurses have 
been found most valuable. Such a work 
oarrietl on over so large an area re- 
ijuires a large amount of financial as- 
sistance. A fund was established by 
I^dy Minto. and the present appeal for 
additional aid is furthered by the Duch- 
ess of Connaiight, who has become deep- 
ly interested in the work." 

No province In Canada will benefit 
niori; than Br1ti*h Onl'imhif! hy .a jvlnn 
which will brinsr tlie aid of trained 
nurses into lonely places. The ne*d 
will be more greatly felt as Bettlement 
advances into the. new districts of the

What Tomtny Dj^^dstle. who wjm 
one of Victoria** ttam In tbe Paclflc 
Cout hockey leaffuift, thinks of the 
fame's prospecfi In the weft Is Indi- 
cated In an Interview be {k4tI1 out In 
Winnipeg shortly aher his JUrival. He 
starts out bt saylns that New West' 
minster would l«ave won the Stanley 
Cup had It |r6Bi"h«eirT»T»ffliJ»l« To| 
that honor. 4n ttUa oaiwasMoa tamsHc-;

"Had New Westminster cone east 
and played the Ahelent «ity team for 
the Stanley -cup, I am c«rtjaln that the 
trophy would have found a place wttb 
the other silverware at the coast. Si'x 

city's first spring horse show, which 
win be held on May 2, 3 and ,4.. The 
management is taking this step at the 
earnoat solicitation of a large number 
of inland equestrians, and there is no 
doubt that these competitions will at- 
tract a particularly large entry. . 

There Is a Jumping contest for 
ladies, over four hurdles, performance 
only to count, for which a silver cup 
Is offered the winner, a silver medaj 
for ssconA, and a fcronse nieual for 
-third. This will be followed by a rid- 
ing competition for girls (novice), the 
awards for which are a cup and med- 
als. The boys under sixteen years 
have not been forgotten, a Jumping 
event having been arranged, for them. 
The successful one.3 will receive prlaes 
to the value of $10. $7, and J5. The 
last will be a combination class, in 
which kre hung up a cup and two 

7»moa« Xrleta Jnmpere 

During the paat few dayii' Secretary 
George Sangster has been receiving so 
many high class entries that he con- 
fidently expects the forthcoming show 
to measure up to the standard sef up 
by that which Is held hero in the tell 
during ekhtbition week. Among trie 
most notable of tho^e which came td 
hand yesterday were the famous Irish 
Jumpers recently brought to British 
olUmbla Irom the Old C^ountry and 
which are 4n charge of Mr. A. Doy)ie. 
who Is maktnf bis home at Vancouver, 

These beauti/ul animals have been 
shipped ifrom Oreat Britain to form the 
nucleus ol a thoroughbred stock fint) 
in this province, it being the opinion 
of their owners that the conditions are 
ntbre sultible 'here than anywhere else 
for the brewllnir of horses of- the re-^ 
quired Quality i^r entry In tbe Grand 
National and other well-known stee- 
plechases. Those coming to Victoria 
Include Shamrock, St. Johnson, Haw- 
«en,. America, Shea and Valentine. 
Their **'e reported to be as tine a Idt 
OS r0portad and their perform«itip^ are 
being looked forward to T>y enitivuMiaStB 
a« en* 'Of thv features of the event. 

When Dr Medd.^'of Victoria, return- 
ed from Calgary, where he Judged that 
city's .show, he stated that th^ horse- 
men of the prairies vrere much ta>h«n 
Oblumbla f^om the Old Cautttry Jind 
decided almost- to a man to oomfi to 

It is slated that although the Aus- 
tralian swimming teaun entered In the 
Olympic ^ames will be weak In some 
respects Its. overwhelming strength In 
all free style swima should make it 
possible to win the point tropliy 
against all comers. This ia an asser- 
tion made by Mr. Cecil Healy, apeak- 
Inj In behalf of the Commonwealth. 

With regard to the Americana Mr. 
Healy points out that they have made 
most of their records in short pools, 
wlilch cannot be compared with the 
marks established by William Long- 
worth, the all-round .Vustrallan c*iam- 
pion. pver straight away or 110-yard 
courses. He also tiuestlons the ability 
of Porry McCllllvray, Harry Hebner 
and Rlcliarcl I''rizell to cxjvoi- ilie "ceii- 
ttiry" under 57 seconds, since they 
were beaten by C. M. Uanlels last 
spring In 56 4-& seoond-s, and he seems 
particularly skeplical of Duke Kahan- 
anioku's speed, not even coneecilng hi in 
a chtiiiie in the 100-metre dash. As to 
the hellof held by outsider.s that i-htu 
AustruUnnsi wlU Ixr aftccteii Uy the 
northern ellnitttij' and the low temper- 
ature of llie- water, he laughs at the 
thought and says Anxprlcans are mucli 
more likely to suffer by the change. 
Fast Belay Team 
"William Longworth, Harold Hurd- 
wlck and LerfUe lioardman and -l will 
probably compote in the 8U0-metre re- 
\ay race. and_ wc have aver aged thl.-i 
season 'J minutes and 31 ' 1-5 second.^ 
over a 110-yard course, which, JudginK 
by past performances, is faster by a 
couple of seconds than any ofher <iuar- 
totte can do under similur conditions. 
Then Longworth and Hardy have tra- 
veled 100 yard.s strais'iitaway within' 
inches of each other in 56 1-6 seotmda, 
a world'.'^ record, which seems to make 
them e(iual favorHes for thu lOO-melre 
title. And all three, LongwortJh, Hardy 
and myself should have a chance in 
the 400 and 1,500 metre rices, for 
Beaurepaire defeated England's best

Victoria Team Players Indig- 
nant Because Tiieir Right to 
Play for People's Shield is 
Questioned— Make Proposal 

Victoria's ftootbajl , fraternity Is 

Juet after the last Victoria- Vancou- 
ver Thistle soccer match it was an- 
nounced that the former would chal- 
lenge for the people's shield, which is 
the symljol of the Canadian champion- 
ship, and the tournament for which is 
to be held in Winnipeg this summer. 
When the Victoria West eleven cap- 
lured the Vancouver Island simon 
pure amateur title it was stated by 
Iheir captaiu, Mr, Stanley ^kcli, that, 
lirovldlng the trip could be llnanc^d,- 
(hey would make a try for the Do- 
minion's highest honors. Then bhero 
was spread a report that the Victoria 
representative team, or the aggrega- 
tion which have l)een jokingly referred 
to as profossion^ils durins the season, 
could not lake part in the prairie com- 
petitions because at thi.-lr questionable 

This a.isertlon promises to re-open 
the long-standing dissatisfaction 

among many soccer, players with the 
British (•olumjji;,!. Amateur Athletic 
ITiilon. The team which has been 
dubbed the professionals is not so in 
thi; generally actepted sense of tlie 
term. They h!>ve bcon called that to 

amateurs. Tn point of fact they liuve 
never accepted or played for munev as 
individuals. They pl:iyod football 
for thi> lovp of it and have given some 
of the tinest exhibitions whlcli Vic- 
torians have had t,he opportunity .of 
witnessing. Therefore they claim the 
right to challenge for and to play for 
the people's shield. They assert also 
that they are on no different standin»f 
with respect to the amateur organiza- 
tion than are the 'Vancouver Thisties 
or the Nanaimo United loams, both of 
which are authentically reported to in- 
tend making a bid for the Canadian 

It is not believed that the effort to 
discredit the Victoria team emanates 
from the ofllciaila i»f the Victoria West 
soccer club or of any other amateur 
organization directly under the Juris- 
diction of the local branch of the B. C. 

questions have been asked come from 
unauthoritative sources end that nothins 
further will he heard. The fact that 
Victoria's team intends journeying to 
thu east, it is explained, does not in- 
terfere with Victoria West plans. 
IlT' it is the wish of the aniateuf i.sland 
champions one of the otticials of the 
local cluto volunteers to arrange for an 
fxniDicion match to necide which is 
the best, the issue to decide which 
sends in a challenge for • the shield. 
Should th« W<>Rt,s not care to line up 
In an encfosed area, and charge ad- 
mission, the ropresenitative Squad is 
satisfied to have the contest take place 
on some open ground.

of vour medicine. I mlKht .say that X had been a sufferer from .fcUon- 
Chltl" and Astlima for .-.d-xteen years and the attacks were so had at times 
that thev caused mv neck to .-.well. During that time T spent a larRe sum 
for doctors' advice and medicine, but got na relief, but since I havi> started 
uslnK your medicine I have improved wonderfully and feef quite sure that 
T shall be capipieiely .cured .wlliiiii a very short time, and vc^n\d g'adly

time I decided to rIvc it a trial. After trying so many things and all - 
failed to cure, 1 had comm«nce<l to think there could be no cure for 
Asthma but after taking two bottles of Hie Indian Herb, 1 commenced 
"to fret better and kept on taking it for two months, at the end of this time' 
1 was curfrd. It is .seven months now since I stopped taking it and I 
liaveii't had any sign <if Asthma since. T have been troubled with Asthma 
for a grpal m«ny years and n<»v..r -vpe.ned to get cured. A million 

thanks to the Indian Herb.

PORTIj-^^NB, Ore.. April 18.— Capt. C. 
MaroU 'Of tlie German shLn Frieda re- 
ports that on March 13, when the ves- 
sel was four days out from .Santa Ros- 
alia, Walter Lehmann, a dock boy, fell 

injurpd that he died two .hou^s later 
wiiiiout recovering consciousness. The 
lad was 19 years of age. His parents 
live in Berlin. 

Tihe Frieda arrived here after en- 
countering Hght and head winds prac- 
tically all the way up the coast. She 
was plelced up by the tug Wallula, 
seventy-flve miles ofT shore. The tug 
.secured tilm schooner Resolute in the 
s;ime locality and towed the two ves- 
.st'l.s into port tandem. 

Although the Frieda missed her can- 
celing date she will be retained by 
Npame & Co. to load ;:,i>00,uOO Xebt o£ 
lumber for South Africa. 

In January the Frieda was charter- 
ed at 00 shillings, and the contract 
.spoclfiod that she must arrive by 
.\Iarc.!i 31. It Is optional In all char- 
ters whether the company enRaging a 
vessel keep her if she fails to put In 
an appearance as soon as specified, or 
permit the owners to seek other busi- 
ness for her. 

Since the Frieda was chartered at 60 
.shillings, the rate for similar tonnage 
ilia."? advanced to 70 shillings, and nat- 
urally tho company engaging her sev- 
eral months ago has decided to retain 
the vessel. It is said that the Increase 
which has resulted over the old rate 
at which she was taken will be ample 
to pay e big .share of her port expenses.

These are preliminary contract's and 
the work will commence Immediately. 
BIda have been called for hardware

nicnced as soon a.s the preliminary 
work, •outlined in th*- foregoing con-

from Ocean Falls direct to Prince Ru- 
pert. The ereoaoted lumber contract 
has been awarded to the I>ominion

^steamers, which have been built for 
speed and comfort, are 580 feet In 
length and have a beam of 68 feet. It 
is expected they will reduce the time

The fastest lime up to the present is 
that of . the Kmpress of Japan which 
made the voyage about twelve years 
ago in 10 day.s 10 hours. 

The Enipres.s of China has been aban- 
doned to the underwriters, who will 
sell the steamer as she Hes damaged 
at Ui-aga, Japan, by auction. It Is ex- 
pected that the claims under policies 
held on the Kmpra^s .of China will be 
settled on a basis which will work out 
at 75 per cent on the hull policies. The 
stoampr was stranded on Shirahania 
reef on July 2 6 last and after protract- 
ed salvage operations, whlcii cost $1S0,- 
000, the vessel was floated. The hull 
was insured on a valuation of aboiit 
1750,000, and a further amount of $250,- 
000 was placed on disbursements. It is 
expected that the disbursements' under- 
writers will contribute 25 per cent to- 
■ward the settlement and this amount 
is Included in maklnc up the 76 per cent

Kobe. 'I'he xokoliama Maru ■will replace 
the Tamba Maru sailing from Japan 
about June 1. The Shldzouka Maru will 
replace the Inaba Maru later in the 
summer. It is understood that the Tam- 
ba Maru and the Inaba Maru will be 
employed on one of the Indian routes. 
The new vessels have a gross tonnage of 
6200, a length of 400 feet, breadth mold- 
ed of 50 feet, and depth molded of >^0 
feet. Tliey have been constructed to 
carry 28 saloon passengers, and 3!)0 In

The Georgian II. is 202 feet long with 
a 40-foot beam and has been running up 
to Prince Rupert during the ,past two 
years. The greateot care is exercised 
in taking consignments up north — the 
present consignment is worth about 
$35,000 — but there is aways a certain 
amount of risk when tho sea is at aU 
rough, and It will be remembered that 
the Georgian 11. was wrecked several 
years ago. The O. T. P. tug Kscort, 
which has had her broken flange re- 
paired on the Wallace w-ays. and which 
will tow the barge, is a particularly

A Seal Treat In Muslo — The I^ondon 
notices of the Flonzaley quartet reflect 
the same enihusiasni that has been 
shown in the comments on tho playlns 
of this splendid organlzutlon In Amer- 
ica "The Performance," said the Lon- 
don Jtlorning Post, "was one of the per- 
ftct kind and will rank as the most re- 
markable that has been given by a quar- 
tet of different nationality to that of 
the- composer." "Sue!} playing as theirs 
is rarply heard," declared tlie Westmin-

semble and beauty of tone they are cer- 
tainly unsurpassable." "The reputa- 
tion which these players have already 
sained in London," aald' the London 
*l'imes, "will be increased by last night's 
concert, ^or theJ^ played once more with 
extraordinary delicacy and vigor combin- 
ed. The delicacy of the soft passages 
was not lessened by the vigor which un- 
derlay them, and the vigor of the loud 
passages was. not dinilnlshed by the del- 
icacy witii which the smallest nuances 
were observed." "The fine blend of tone,"

splendid musical organization comes to 
Victoria early In May, being the last 
of the season's offerings by the Ladles' 
Musical club. 

Tbs Smprsss Tbaatr*— Seldom it ever 
is a Japanese act presented that Is ^o* 
more or less satlsfactorj'. This is due 
in no small degree to the precision with 
which they negotiate difficult tricks — 
the result of a-life's work before they 
attempt to perform before the puhUo. 
Toku Kisshe who is the headliner at tho 
Fmpress this week outclasses most of 
tl'.cse acts by ills daring and swiftness 
of action. Added to his acrobatic feats 
Is the splendid demonstration of head 
balancing. This Isplendid performer 
gives as thrilling an exhibition as ever 
seen In this city. He walks up a taut 
rope stretched from the stage to the 
cellins- ahove the gallery, anfl -nrltii a 
warning cry, slides rapidly on his feet 
to the stage. The act is a thriller from 
start to finish. The Guy Brothers are a 
couple of musicians and minstrel per- 
formers who have an act replete with 
minstrel melody ari'tt humor, and their 
act is one of the popular hits of the 
well balanced bill provided by Manager 
Wisncr this week. Eldon and Clifton, 
who offt-r a protean sketch entitled "His 
Awful Nightmare," include some clever 
work. Miss Clifton wh-o does some re- 
markably good quick change work ap- 
pears in tho role of many wives Eldon 
dreams of in his nightmare. Josie and 
Willie Barrows do a good singing, danc- 
ing and talking number and Billy Chance 
amuses with his monologue and songs.

one of art's Important functions, viz.: 
It criticizes life for the sake of health 
(ind humanity. TUie mother lets the 
girls play while she did the hard work. 
Consequently they were butterflios and 
knew so lltle about cooking that when 
mother fell sick and they had to be- 
gin their work was idiotic. It Is a 
good subject well told. "A (Prlncesa

that are very pleasing. "Prospector's

The Secretary (Mr. 
having read the notice 

Tlic Cl-airman (Mr. E. A. Hoare) 
said: Gentlemen, before I make any 
reference to the report and balance 
sheet which is In your hands today, 
I must say a few v,xirds respecting the 
report and balance-sheet of the 30th 
June, 1911, because the report contain- 
ed two paragraphs of special impor- 
tance. Flr.«it, the liability under guar- 
antee for $200,000 which the 13ank as- 
sumed In October, 1906, in connectioii 
with the liquidation of the Ontario 
Bank, now disappears from the balance 
sheet. Xo claim arose under the guar- 
antee. This you no doubt read with 
satisfaction, but the second paragraph 
10 wlilcii I draw your attention was of 
still greatsr Importance. It was as 
follows: — "A circular was issued to the 
proprietors on June 28 informing them 
that ^tlie lloyal Charter had been ex- 
icnileU lor a period of ten >c<i.i» to 
July 1, 1921." At our meeting last 
year llie Cjjalrman informed you that 
iipplicatioa had been made to the 
lx>rds of llic Treasury for this ex- 
tension, and that there was no reason 
10 expect that tlie application would 
[„'- any less favorably dealt with than 
(Ml former occa.slon and it was a pleas- 
111 (• lo the Court to be able to Inform 
ihn iironrietors by circular on June 28 
ilKii these anticipations liad been rcal- 
r/.i(i. And now, without reading the 
ippoi t, to wiuch I siiall refer in detail 
a.s 1 proceed, 1 will pass on to point 
out the principal changes in the figures 
subnillled to you today oompareil with 
,i,rtu« nf n, y<»ar ago. The reserve fund 
,-1 |2, 774,000, compared with TJ. 652, 333 
ill 1910 — !in increase of J121,666. It 
lias often been explained to you before 
thHt as our responsibilities and our 
lluliilities increase, it Is necessary to 
keep on building up the reserve, and 
we know that you approve of that policy. 
The dep«.),slts show an increase of J4,000,- 
ino, a larger increase than you are 
to bee; wU;. i: ;= Tis-'- i-a- 
1 should mention that there ere in- 
iluded in that total certain special de- 
posits which I do not expect to be per- 
manent. Notes in circulation amount to 
$4,111,591. or an increase of $661,097. 
During the ytar there has been an in- 
creasing demand. Cor circulation, and in 
the harvest montlis wo reached a rec- 
ord total. To enable us to avail our- 
selves of our full jirivileges under the 
Bank Act, we inereased our inv^estment 
in Dominion of Canada Bond.-., to which 
I shall refer again when I speak of our 
investments, and we needed therri ail. 
Bills payable end other liabilities sliow 
an increase of $4,097,733, but there is 

$1,363,886. This cash Item represents 
4175 per cent, of our ; immediate Ue- 
bilitles — that is, deposits payable on 
demand and note circulation. at 
^all and short notice at $10,064, 26K sliows 
an inorease of $983,06G, and thr total 
of these two items amounting lo $1',- 
242 600, actually exceeds the total of

niUBt oome down, a»d on the prowit 
site we propose to erect a modern build- 
ing which should proVld« ample space 
not only for present requirements but 
for the future. This will be a larfe 
and coBtly undertaking. I cannot thus 
bid farewell to the old building which 
Is BO familiar ^ many in this room 
without a word of regret at the sever- 
ance of old aasooletions and a tribute 
of appreciation to those who built It. 
uur predecessors here did their work 
thoroughly and well. The site upon 
which the present building stands was 
pur<.-hHHed in 1842 for $12,166.86. Today, 
after the lapse of seventy years, It Is 
worbh mkare than $213,233.33. The 
building occupied some yottrs, and I 
find from our ancient records that it 
was not completed until 1S17, the total 
c^ost of land and building being $55,2 1«.- 
66. No doubt additions were subseuuent- 
ly made, but I have not pursued my re- 
searches any further. Apparently no 
contractor was employed. «uk1 our books 
contain long columns of detalliNl en- 
tries of payments for piece-work and

We -Jiave purchased valuable IniUding 
sites at St. John. N'ew Brunswick, and 
Kdmonton. Alberta, end In the course 
of the present year we hope to put up 
suitable buildings in Iwtli places. Wc 
take $48,666 from the profits of the half- 
vear for the credit of the^pnMiilses ac- 
count and we wish that we" couTd havB 
done more. 1 warn you that later 



have just referred. Investments 
holding in Kxchequer Bonds stands at 
the same total as last year. Dominion 
of (vflJiada Bonds show an in-'^reasp of 
$374,733. These purclinses were made 
froni time to time in anticipation of the 
demand for circulation w^hlch subse- 
quently took place. There Is no object 
In adding further to this investment for 
we liave now reached the limit which 
we are allowed to use for the purpose 
of our circulation by the Bank Act. 
Other Investments at $111,933 show a 
decrease of $43,S00. You have probably 
noticed the gradual reduction in the 
total of the other Investments. Several 
.._„_„ ^.xyc e!s'^=ed Binee thH Court de- 
cided to exchange the other investments 
for Dominion of TanadLV Bonds. Ten

ber. 1901. showed that the other invest- 
ments stood at $1,187,466, whilst we 
held no Dominion of Canada Bonds at 
all. Today as you see, entries are 
practically reversed. The intervening 
years have not been favorable for the 
sale of high-class securities, and it ha« 
required much patient watchiuiness to 
achieve this result. Now that this Is 
accomplished wo arc well satisfied, and 
I venture to say that In this matter of 
Investments our position Is most envia- 
ble, for, owing to tlie policy decided 
upon by the Court in 1909— which I fully 
explained to you in my address of l&iO — 
we enjoy complete Immunity from the 
depreciation wliich has been so harass- 
ing to all the banks in the Unltefl King- 
dom during recent years. Bills receiv- 
able, loans on security, and other ac- 
counts show an increase of $6.0l5,00n, 
and the total largely exceeds any previ- 
ous records. Bank premises, showing

nual lamentation which you are accus- 
tomed to hear from sucx^esBlve chair- 
men. You know quite well what T am 
going to say, but nevertheless 1 must 
say it The heavy expenditure upon 
iaank premises i.s one that we are most 
reluctant to incur, hut It Is forced upon 
us. Not to go forward is to go back, 
and we must be constantly pressing 
forward Iboaigh ■comservatlsm guides 
our steps. Nor can I even hold out 
any hopes that we are reaching the 
limit of this expenditure, for during 
1912-13 it will be neces.sary for us to 
undertake some important building w'ork 
whloh has become Inevitable. Those of 

■n you tnat laier on 
we shall be obliged to do more; but 1 
wish to make it quite clear that this 
pr"Vl?l"n l« not In respect of any de- 
preolallon in values for the properties 
owned by the Bank are certainly worth 
more today than the figures submitted 
to you In the balaxice-sheet. During 
the year 1911 eight branohes and sub- 
branches have been opened, and one sub- 
branch has been closed. We have now 
elKliLs-rieVcn separate estab!l!>hmentfi, 
compared with eighty at the close of 
1910. These figures show a general and 
satisfactory expansion and 1 am pleased 
to H«y that this expansion is also rep- 
resented In the profits. For the pre- 
ceding year the profits were $554,800 
vvherca,s the sum now at your disposal 
amounts to $627. SOQ. The result would 
have been still better were it not for 
tiie fact that the average rate for call 
money throughout the year in New 
York was no better than 2.602 per cent., 
, .^ T ^-.i„„ t 10 Tw>r rent., ajid con- 
sequently the largo sum maintained at 
call and short notice, as the first line of 
our reserves, has been earning a low 
rate of interest. Of the sum at our dis- 
posal you have already received $146.- 
000, as an Interim dividend, and we now 
propose to pay a dividend of 40s per 
share, and a bonus of 10s per. share, 
making 8 per cent for the year; to 
._„„„ff,, to r««r-rvA fnnd $121,666 to 
premises account $48,666 to make usual 
grants whii-h you have always so cor- 
dially sanctioned for the benefit of the 
Officers' Widows and Orphans Fund, 
Pension Fund, and the Life Insurance 
Fund; and finally. In the payment of a 
bonus of b per cent, on their salaries to 
the staff, and this I trust you will 
generously grant as you have done he- 
fore, for i can assure you that they de- 
serve It. Those appropriations will leave 
a balance of $92,466 to be carried for- 
ward to tilt, new account. You will 
observe that this year we are introduc- 
ing a change in respect of the dividend 

of "free of income tax,' as hertofore. 
As you are aware, this change has been 
adopted by nearly all the principal 
banks In the United Kingdom, who have 
considered it desirable to seiJarate the 
income tax payment and to show lo 
each shareholder his individual contri- 
bution In respect of the tax. Another 
change which we propose to Introduce 
is an alteration In the bank's financial 
year, whereby the t)alance-»lieet8 will 
henceforth be made up to May 31 and 
November 30 In each year Instead of, 
as hitherto, to June 30 and December 
31. It has been represen^ted to us by

pose to K»»k« any alteration In tlw dale

be held In Maj^Jfti of each year a^ TJ*" 
vided by the dded of settlement. I ae- 
sire to draw your particular attention 
to this alteration, because it must affect 
the profits shown in 1912. It is obvious 
that unless the unforseen occurs we 
cannot hope to earn In eleven months 
as much a» we might do In a full year, 
and therefore, although we should not 
now have advanced the dividend unless 
with isiK)d hope of being able to main- 
tain It, yo« must be prepared to -r>e 
a smaller net profit for 1912 than we 
are showing today. It Is • impossible 
for me to forecast the future, but our 
hop« is that wc may be able to make 
two equal dlBlrlbutlonj: of 'l Per '•""♦• 
each, and, dropping the bonus, U. make 
the dividend 8 per cent. T give thid 
explanation so as to prevent any pos- 
sible disappointment when you receive 
the balance-^heel made up to May -U 
next, which will represent the profits or 
only five months. The changes which 
I have now explained to you are im- 
portant, and consequently we have not 
introduced them without consultation 
with your audiiore. T am authorlzsd .c 
sav that they have their full approval.

brlefiv, to notice some of the matters 
in finance and Imlustry which appear 
to me to be of principal imporlaJice. 
The voar l?il Will, on politl^f.! grounds 
always be memorable in the history or 
the Dominion, but as It has ever been 
iho tradition of this Bank that we 
should not introduce politic* into our 
business, I do not propose to make any 
further reference to the Important issue 
submitted to the country in Septembei- 
last, or to the results of the Oenoral 
In trade and finance the 
been one of steady progress 
without excitement. The deposits in 
the Canadian banks at the end of -Oe- 
cember. 1911, amounted to $1,006,696080 
—an Increase of no less than $110,990,- 
during the year. This incjease is

increasing prosperity. You niust tjot,

the subject of Investments in Canada

subject today. The Dominion of Can-

best, if not the very best, field for In- 
'vestment, but it is not logical to ac- 
cept every investment which is brought 
out under the heading "Dominion of 
Canada" as though it must be beyond 
qvestlon. It 13 most important that 
investors should '^.-cc.mlne and criticize 
for themselves. a.nd If they ht^ve not 
the local knowledge which enable tlierfi 
to form a correct opinion, that they

portance of this warning to the investor 
is evident, but It Is equally important 
to the Dominion of' CanAdn. Develop- 
ment is proceeding rapidly— far more

\tkPttf% ftdvieaa wtUch 1 b»va i*«a» from 
Canada appear to ahow rtat the matter 
ti eUll ttoder consideration. The coB- 
dlUona of the lumber trade were not 
favorable. The rainfall waa unuaually 

llfht during the early «^»*1** '**1 "f k I 
aon. and oonaequenUy tba^awr m tne 
atreams waa too low to eMkble the lum- 
bermen to get out thatr laat winter a 
out. ' The riiarkat. too. haa been dull, 
both In the United States and Great 
Britain; but later In the year both 
marketa showed aowe Improvement It 
is always Impoaafble at the date of oar 
meeting to give full Information re- 
specting the producUon of the mines 
for the year under revi*w, because the 
flgurea have not then been prepared; In 
fHOt, the Government report for 1910 
has only recently been laaued. This, 
however, ahowa that In that year the 
toUl mineral production was $105,000.- 
OOO, an Increase of more than 1 13.000.000 
over the preceding year. The gold out- 
put of the Yukon Territory, in which 
we are Interested tlirou»h our Dawson 
branch, was in 1911 14.019,000. based on 
the rate of $15 per ounce (th« actual 
total would be somewhat larger) ; this 
was less than in 1910, when $4,091,000 
was the total. There have, however, 
been considerable developments In the 
Camp, and a large amount of capital 
has been expended on the construction 
of a hydro-electric plant, and it is ex- 
peotod that when the plant is operating 
to Us full extent the output of gold 
will again increase. The silver mines 
ot Cobalt continue to inoream; their 
pro<luction, and it 1h estimated that the 
total output of the Camp for the year 
will not be less than 32,0ou,ouo ounces. 
Not only BO, but the prlco of silver 
has been rising throughout the year, 
and the present quotation Is higher than 
It ha.s been at any time since 1908, and 
this advance in values is another point 
in favor of the Camp. It is, however, 
to the harvest that we principally look 
for the Bvid«ni'e of t^nada's prosper- 
ity, and especially to the three Central 
Provlnceii. 1 cannot do oelter than 
quote from a cablegram addressed by 
the Minister of the Interior to the High 
Commissioner on this subject. He says: 
"The harvest was late and the quality 
of crops In some places poor, but the 
total crop was abundant, and the rel- 
atively high prices have on the wliolo 
"given" ine fafriier'a "gWJa,' thoirgh not 
a bumper, year. Th« crop will bring 
$200,000,000 to Western Canada." That 
summary coincides entirely with the 
report received fix)m our own Prairie 
branches In 1911. The see*! was »uwu 
under most favorable conditions, and 
early In the season the weather was 
warm and dry, yet with sufficient mois- 
ture to give excellent promise of abun- 
dant crops. It was not until the 
eleventh hour that this changed, and 
at Clie time of harvest cold and w-et 
w<:a.Uicr hindered the threshing, with 
the result that a great deal of grain 
was left upon the ground exposed to 
the snow, which began to fall soon after. 
The difficulties of the farmer were fur- 
ther Increased by the .congestion on the 
railways, although those great corpora- 
tions used all their available resources 
to move the crop, and it la estimated 
tlMit no less than 61.000,000 bushels of 
wheat still await shipment. As to the 
condition of the grain which It was im- 
1 poBslbla.. to move out before the winter 
iinows, I do not venture to express an 
ot)livlon, but relying upon the Govern- 
ment summary which I have already 
qajoted — tiiat the crop will bring $-00,- 
000,000 tp Western Caitoda — we may feel 
well satisfied with the results of the 
season. The remedy for these difficulties 
will, no doubt, be found In the Intro- 
duction ot mixed farming— a subject 
which you may remember we dlsousned 
at our meeting two year« ago. Further 
official Information received by the High 
Commlsirloner from the Census and 
Statistics Offices at Ottawa states tltat 
the field crops of Canada ocoupled last 
year a total area of 32,853,000 acres, and 
their value, calculated at the average 
local prices, amounted to $565,712,000 — 
a truly remarkable total, in the autumn 
Mr. J. H. Mayne Campbell paid his an- 
nual visit to Canada, and we are in- 
debted to him for much valuable work 
in the interests of the Bank. I, too, 
had made arrangements for a visit to 
Canada, but was, much to my regret, 
at the laat moment prevented by private 
affairs from leaving home. I now hng 
to move that the report and accounto 
be adopted.

Mr. T. E. Williams: It peems a pity, 
sir. that this motion should be put 
without a remark of any kind from 
this side of the tabic, but I am sure 
from your exi/«rl«nce you feel that it 
is such a satisfactory report that the 
.shareholders have no criticisms to offer 
and no unfavorable remarks to make. 
You have referred with feelings of some 
little regret, I think, to the increased 
expenditure tipon Bank premises. I can- 
not myself share tljat feeling of regret 
for I am certain from the bjiiaM ob- 
servations 1 have been able to make in 
various parts, that all expenditures of 
which I have any knowlefdge have been 
most economically and moat prudently 
designed and carried out. You have 
referred to Montreal, and probe.'bly that 
and some of the Western parts are well 
known to many who are here. I have 
noticed also both in Victoria and Van- 
couver— to speak only of two of which 
are farth«r away — that there the sites 
are exceptionally g^>od and the build- 
ings are substantial and convenient, 
though possibly they might by some be 
thought to err on the side of modesty, 
but that is a matter of commendable 
economy. I will not trouble you with 
any other remarks or waste your time 
further. I feel it is a most satisfactory 
statement that We have listened to. 
(Hear, hear.) 

Mr Maurice Powell: 1 am glad to 
see, in comparing tm»i ywr's aocoun;tB 
with last year's that there appears to 
b« an advance In almost all the Items, 
r think it is a very prudent step, con- 
sidering the very large amount of our 
transactions, that the reaervo fund 
should be increased by |121.68«. That 
Is an item whloh one must always re- 
gard with satisfaction, as It shows the 
strong ba«ls on which the Bank is found- 
ed Tou mentioned tbe investment in 
Dominion of Canada Bonds, and said 
that you had reached the limit allowed 
by the Bank Aot Perhaps you will 
juat explain what that means. 

The Chairman: The words' which I 
uaed m my arfdreaa were theae: 

«a ret tUe next dividend it wiU ba. In-, 
ruJd of »0a. :8» 8d unless you are abh» 
to make It It le-a tax. With reference 
to the change In the Bank'a financial 
year, will It a»t«- the date of the pay- 
ment of th« divldendY I think I Imve 
nothing further to say except to con- 
gratulate the directors on the aucoeaa 
which has attended their labora in the 
paat year. (Hear, hear.) 

The '^hairman: With regard to tha 
queatWrn put by Hr. Powell, the pay- 
ment of tiia dividend must be """l* »t 
a certain specified interval after the 
mooting, and therefore the dividend will 
be paid Just as hitherto. The month of 
March la fixed by the deed of settlement 
for the holding of the annual mr»tlng, 
and we have no power to alter tm,t; 
t-h^refpre. the meeting win be held as 
hitherto, tna.the dlvWend will be paid

we Care exceeamgly indebted i.. tne

great attention thoy give- to the affairs 
of the Bank. I feel myself that It is 
a most satisfactory Bank to have a 
little mon^y invested in, because It Us 
eo verv oaref.uUy watched over and so

to propose a vote of thanks to

Mr. Tunmer: I beg to second tliat 
I should also like, to say that I am 
very pleased to sec that in the balance- 
siheet this time you do not forget 
wtait. i^ast year the chairman 
that someone had written to him ob

to the staff. I do not think that It Ls 
the right policy to ■stint the staff In 
any shape or form. If we want good 
work we must pay for It. The remark 
a made last year that othsr banks 
iiad given more by way of a oonus to 
the staff, and I think that we should 
not be behind thonu I have great pleas-

Carborundum Stones 

Gold Medal, Charleston, 1902 

Combination Stones — These stones arc designed 
especially for carpenters and mechanics. 

They are made with one face of coarse and one 
face of very fine grit. The coarse side can be used 
for sharpening dull tools, the fine side to bring the 
re((uired keen, sharp edge. 

Round Combination Axe Stone — The Carborun- 
dum Round Axe Stone has several decided advan- 
tages. It is a combination >-ton€ having one side 
coarse grit and the other fine grit, llie same stone 
takes out the nicks and gives the finished edge 
quickly, and it is of such convenient size and shape 
as to be easily carried in the workman's pocket. 

No. 196, 3in. diameter by 9,3 in. 

Knife Sharpener — A round shaft ui Carborun- 
dum, firmly mounted on handle by a steel rod extend- 
ing its entire length, giving it strength and durability. 

Slatine Roofing

trails. These coaches leave the hotels at half past

In this department prompt delivery is the import- 
ant factor. If you are catching a steamer or train 
you like to know that your luggage or packages will 
be at the wharf or station in good time to depart 
with you. What is more annoying than search- 
ing for your belongings a minute before your steam- 
er sails or your train pulls out. This is offset by 
our claim checks. Our drivers check your baggage 
at your residence. You present the claim check 
to the baggage-master — show your ticket — he then 
gives? you the railway or steamer check and that 
18 all. You then go on your way rejoicing. If we 
cannot attend to your order we will tell you and 
thus avoid suspense.
